Developed jointly by Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC) and American Society of Irrigation Consultants (ASIC) committee members, this course provides technical and economic information on the design and performance of a fully integrated site and building water management system based on the "Net Zero Water" concept.
This approach promises to significantly reduce the consumption of potable water in buildings, reduce discharge to municipal waste water systems, and save on municipal energy by reducing the amount of potable water treated at municipal facilities. The recognition of the connection between water management and energy conservation is emerging as a new opportunity in integrated management systems.
Explore costs and benefits of building-integrated water management systems.
Describe the stages in the integrated water cycle and how this approach can be used to design more efficient systems.
Establish best practices for design, installation and maintenance of system components.
Learn how system monitoring can be used to evaluate the efficiency and performance of a fully functioning system.
